If eating eggs constantly appeal to you? Then the easter Egg diet is for you. There have been several version of this diet existing for years, which basically consists of eating up to 6 hardboiled eggs each day. Eggs are a good source of complete protein and also essential vitamins and minerals. They are low in calories but do contain high protein and fat. This could be incorporated into a low or no-carb diet such as Atkins.

Foods Emphasized: Eggs, egg whites, hardboiled eggs, scrambled eggs, omelets, sunny-side-up eggs, and soft-boiled eggs

Foods Restricted: Carbohydrates and artificial sweeteners

Premise and Guidelines: Eggs are known for containing protein, but they also have high amounts of vitamins and minerals. Also, egg whites contain one of purest form of proteins available in whole-foods. Its protein content is so unparalleled that nutritionists use eggs as the standard when comparing other whole-food proteins. That is why so many bodybuilders consume large amounts of eggs- the protein is easily absorbable and even tops beef and meat protein for digestive efficiency.

The easter egg diet is a high-protein, low-carbohydrate plan requiring you to eat several eggs throughout the day. You can generally eat as many eggs as you wish as long as you limit your carb intake. Eggs really pack a punch by filling you up on relatively low calories. It’s probably better to be consumed along with a balanced meal or as a snack instead as of the sole meal. Those following this diet may soon tire of boiling and smelling eggs. And most would agree that eggs taste better with toast, which is restricted!

Although eggs are a perfectly good and healthy food source, weight-loss might not be easy with this diet. It might be good to increase egg consumption if you plan to body build or try to increase your muscle mass, but for now, continue to enjoy your easter eggs by including them in a balanced meal program that includes them in moderation.
